Not at this moment, but we're working on A7 R III, that may enable us to support other new Sony cameras in the future.

We do plan to support Sony cameras, but there's still quite a lot of work to do about it, so we can't give a time estimate yet. We can already say that we will only support Sony A7 III / A7 R III. Older cameras will not be supported since they do not have the functionality needed for Helicon Remote to be able to work with them.

We are now on Sony A7 R4 ... will there ever be something here to use those?

Looks a little bit strange that this takes years! :twisted:

I would like to add my encouragement for Sony A7rIII camera support. I had been using Helicon with my Canon 5dMIII, but I much prefer the Sony and would LOVE to continue to use Helicon Remote. I've been checking the Helicon support and forum pages for three years now and all I've seen is "we're working on it." I am a software developer and I appreciate all that goes into designing, testing and releasing a new product. Just know that for every person who goes to the trouble to register for the forum in order to provide feedback (as I just did), there are probably dozens of users who would like this functionality, but didn't want to go through the hassle of registering. (As an aside, the registration process was not at all invasive of personal information compared to other sites--thanks for that.)

The next version of Helicon Remote will support Sony A7(R)III. We also intend to support A7RIV in the future, but the current beta doesn't support this camera body yet. Sony A7 II and earlier models will not be supported due to technical limitations of these camera bodies.

That sounds there is something going on ... and has to - as successful as the Sony system is on the market ... :wink:

Any idea how long it will take to support the A7RIV as well hopefully NOT another year ... :roll:
